New Music: Shakira f/ Rihanna – ‘Can’t Remember to Forget You’

Can't Remember to Forget You

After scoring her 13th No. 1 hit with Eminem’s single “The Monster,” Rihanna has set her sights at the top of the charts once again. The pop superstar teams with fellow Roc Nation signee Shakira on the Colombian bombshell’s new single “Can’t Remember to Forget You.” The femme fatales make for an unforgettable combination as they sing about a lover that they can’t shake.

“But when you look at me, the only memory, is us kissing in the moonlight/ I can’t remember to forget you,” they sing on the upbeat, reggae-tinged record.

In an interview with Glamour, Shakira opened up about collaborating with RiRi. “Working with her was utopia,” she said. “She’s the cutest woman on the planet. And at the end of the day, we’re both basically Caribbean girls. The chemistry was so good. She taught me dance moves. She was a sweet teacher.”

The song is the first single from Shakira’s upcoming album, due March 25. A video, directed by Joseph Kahn, has already been shot and will premiere in the weeks ahead.

Do they have a hit on their hands? Listen to their sizzling duet below.

    @CB_Lovah, Was anyone else planning on addressing how Shakira is stroking Rihanna like an exotic animal in the “artwork”?

    Love It! This is different for Rih but that’s exactly why i respect her artistry! She’s not afraid to do things differently or be different for that matter!

    Both sound annoying as phuck! I do like the reggae ska but they make so commercial. Another song with Rihanna we won’t remember years from now. These 2 voices should never be on a song together. My ears hurt. I will remember to for you! Ok back to listening Beyonce.

    FormerlyFromTokyo Reply:

    @From France, First off, I’m not here for your neck. I disagree with what you said only because neither woman sings the genre their voices were meant for (except for Shakira, but her English songs are…). Rihanna has a reggae voice, and Shakira sounds much better singing Latin music. I prefer her in Spanish than English.

    But I could only listen to a bit of this song, and not because of their voices but because the song itself was like nothing. They get two big artists and that is what they went with? “Generic” seems too much like a compliment. There are so many different directions they could have come from.

  21. D. kells

    Both beautiful both have talent but the song is not hot. I think it may just be the beat which has that pop feel and for me that’s where they went wrong. But much respect and keep making music to the both of them.

    @BEDSTUYFLY, And that’s all y’all care about is selling and number ones. Like the only thing rihanna fans care about is #1 singles and what clothes she is wearing.

    Like seriously.. do yall really think this generic, dated pop record is good. It’s soo typical.

    FormerlyFromTokyo Reply:

    @laer, Not a member of any stan group, but the same could be said about any of said stan groups. I always think about how none of those people are getting their bills paid by artists, and, in fact, THEIR bill money is going into the artists’ pockets. But I guess “giving life” and giving something to rub one out to is what matters enough to get into daily, pointless arguments w/strangers online.
